What is spinal cord?

The spine or backbone is made up of 33 small spinal bones called vertebrae.  Inside the spine is a bundle of delicate nerves called the “spinal cord”.  These nerves provide two-way communication between the brain and all parts of your body. They make it possible for us to feel and to move.  When we notice that our hands are cold, that means that the nerves in the spinal cord have transmitted information about temperature from our hands to our brain.  We can warm our hands with our breath when our brain communicates with the nerves that control our muscles in our arms, allowing them to bring our hands closer to our mouth.
